Most CC points convert to miles at 1:1. SPG at 20k:25k.
For more specifics refer to the points website.

There are 3 major players in the convertible points game. AMEX MR. Chase UR. And SPG.
Thanks for info. I recently saw difference between UR (1:1) and SPG (2:1) regarding United, so just wanted to read up on this.

I don't understand your second question.

Southwest charges X points per flight based on the price of the ticket (direct correlation between price and points), whereas BA charges X points based on miles traveling. Is there a thread explaining how airlines value their miles to know the price of an award flight? (sorry for short handing q')

Trying to load with amex preferred. Card keeps being declined. Called amex and they said there is no fraud, and they don't even see it going through. Anybody have this?
Or can you not use amex?
Am at store now. Would appreciate help asap. Tia.

Just used spg personal last night reloading on 2 REDcards. First load was declined due to it being the 1st day that the spg cc was activated. After i cleared it up, the rest of the loads worked.

The promotion specifically says "not including walmart and target". Do you think they'll actually forget to exclude those 2 stores?

+1, Even if Target comes up as a "grocery", Chase excludes it from +4% bonus, along with Walmart (maybe chase doesn't like these 2 stores teaming up with amex ???)

Is there a place where you can see how much you have spent in qualifying purchases for the quarter?

On your Chase account, click on on Blueprint, click on Track it, and it will show you all of your purchases categorized into different categories. So if you've ever bought something at your local store, then you can see if it's a qualifying purchase.

Tech Talk / Re: Bottom Line AT&T or T-Mobile.........?
« on: December 31, 2014, 11:18:03 PM »
I have AT&T Family plan. 5 accounts. $15/month per user for unlimited talk, txt, +125/month for 10 gb data shared ($200 total a month). As i posted earlier, AT&T stopped subsidizing phone prices for upgrades, making upgrades useless. Meaning, that instead of you just paying a flat fee for new upgrade (they give you the phone for cheaper price) and paying same amount/month, now they charge you full price over 12/24/30 months, so your monthly bill goes up (usual+upgrade).

Is it worth it to just get upgrade and pay more, or buy phone on ebay and change phones? Has anyone bought a phone on ebay and had smooth/problematic transition on AT&T network?

If I am not mistaken, it was called something like Shangri-La.  It was not supervised by the Vaad, but I believe it may, at one time, have been under another rabbi's supervision.  It might have been the K-ORC, which is a common hechsher that has been blogged about much.

Thanks for info :)
